The Outcome After Lichtenstein Operation vs. ProGrip Patch Repair of Inguinal Hernia

2014-08-27 03:17:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

For the present study, 400 consecutive men with unilateral primary inguinal hernia are randomized to Lichtenstein repair using either light weight polypropylene mesh (38g/m2) or light weight ProGrip mesh. ProGrip mesh adheres to tissues with polylactic micro hooks without suturing. The primary aim is to examine, whether the ProGrip mesh produces less pain than sutured polypropylene mesh. Secondary outcomes are operation time and convalescence as well as recurrence rate. ProGrip mesh is supposed to be faster to apply as no sutures are needed, which may compensate for its higher cost. The patients are blinded to which mesh they receive.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An abdominal hernia with an external bulge in the GROIN region. It can be classified by the location of herniation. Indirect inguinal hernias occur through the internal inguinal ring. Direct inguinal hernias occur through defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL (transversalis fascia) in Hesselbach's triangle. The former type is commonly seen in children and young adults; the latter in adults.

A protrusion of abdominal structures through the retaining ABDOMINAL WALL. It involves two parts: an opening in the abdominal wall, and a hernia sac consisting of PERITONEUM and abdominal contents. Abdominal hernias include groin hernia (HERNIA, FEMORAL; HERNIA, INGUINAL) and VENTRAL HERNIA.

A groin hernia occurring inferior to the inguinal ligament and medial to the FEMORAL VEIN and FEMORAL ARTERY. The femoral hernia sac has a small neck but may enlarge considerably when it enters the subcutaneous tissue of the thigh. It is caused by defects in the ABDOMINAL WALL.

The tunnel in the lower anterior ABDOMINAL WALL through which the SPERMATIC CORD, in the male; ROUND LIGAMENT, in the female; nerves; and vessels pass. Its internal end is at the deep inguinal ring and its external end is at the superficial inguinal ring.

A pelvic hernia through the obturator foramen, a large aperture in the hip bone normally covered by a membrane. Obturator hernia can lead to intestinal incarceration and INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION.
